Nickel Alloy Fasteners
Nickel fasteners are hard and ductile. Nickel belongs to the transition metals group. The resistance to corrosion of nickel fasteners is good but oxidation might occur slowly at room temperature. At room temperature Nickel fasteners also possess ferromagnetism. Nickel is used in the production of steel. World’s 68% stainless steel is produced with the addition of nickel.
Limonite ore is processed to extract Nickel economically for the production of fasteners. Limonite possess 1-2% of nickel content of its total weight. Nickel is necessary for the development of some plant sp
